1-day Introductory Moxa Skills Workshop in Melbourne on

10th September 2023 with Catherine Kato

Back by popular demand, I am happy to be offering my 1-day Introductory Moxa Skills Workshop in Melbourne on Sunday 10th SeptemberCome and spend the day with me improving your moxa skills in a relaxed and intimate setting. Leave with the confidence to incorporate more of the magic of moxa into your treatments, whether it’s for pain, fertility enhancement, or simply to tonify the Yin or Yang or move the Blood, no matter what style you practice. This is also the only place you will learn the Okuma Sensei Pelvic Adjustment Method, a non-invasive technique to adjust the pelvis using moxa and needles!  If you have already attended one of my workshops, come and further refine your skills and bring your questions and case studies with you.  This will be a very practical, hands-on workshop so numbers are strictly limited.

“Since your workshop, I’ve been exploring moxa use in the clinic. I’m getting such great results and patients are so happy 🙂 It’s also given me a confidence boost in practice and I feel I’ve re-discovered a powerful tool to be used in my therapeutic arsenal. I now fully understand why Acupuncture in China was known as Zhenjiu/Acumoxa. They go hand in hand and should be used together (where appropriate) to give patients the best opportunity to recover.”
Shane, Acupuncturist (Sydney)

“Catherine was very patient and made sure each student was on the right track, which may not be possible if the workshop was with a large group of people.”
Jack, TCM Student (Sydney)

“The workshop was well organized and very informative. I really enjoyed the day and all content covered.”
Ashleigh, TCM Student (Sydney)

“Thanks for a lovely day.  Reinforced and refined some techniques.”
Karen, Acupuncturist (QLD)


Catherine has been diligently making moxa cones for over 25 years since her first visit to Edward Obaidey’s clinic in Tokyo, back when she was at University.  She has her own clinical practice at Eltham Acupuncture in which she blends her 2 passions – 5 Elements Acupuncture with Traditional Japanese Acupuncture, both of which use moxa extensively.  She is the director of House of Moxa, a small business devoted to providing quality moxa products to the acupuncture community throughout Australia and New Zealand.
